bookshelves: shortstories, fiction
Read in September, 2007

i'd heard quite a bit about his writing for some time, yet he remained on my "yeah, yeah, i'll get to it one of these days" shelves. when i acutally got to reading it, i was beyond impressed not only with the impact of these stories, but by the quality of his writing. with larry brown's dirty work, this is easily one of the greatest (anti)war books ever written. acuity, humor, courage, compassion; this book really does have it all.
